Barely bigger than a large apple or coffee mug, Little Thumbelina holds her own, tipping the scale at just over a pound.

The tiny Chihuahua was adopted making her the smallest dog ever adopted from the Wisconsin Humane Society.

"She's the size of my hand, a little bit bigger," said Mia Stache, who adopted Thumbelina. "I've been looking forward to this day for like two weeks."

"Watch out when you take her outside, so the squirrels don't carry her away and nobody steps on her, don't roll over her in bed or on the couch," her father added.

According to Guinness World Records, the smallest living dog in the world weighs one pound and lives in Puerto Rico.
